About This Item

2 parts: 340 pages with fold out table; 143+[3 errata] pages. Octavo (8 ¾ " x 6 ½ ") bound in cloth with gilt lettering to spine. From the library of George M Foster. First edition.

Tzeltal is a member of the Mayan family of languages and is spoken mainly in the State of Chiapas, Mexico. Some of the earliest written documents in Tzeltal are Fray Domingo de Ara's Vocabulario de Lengua Tzeldal Según el Orden de Copanabastla, which is believed to have been written in 1571, and Manuel Díez's 1675 work, Conciones en Lingua Tzeldaica. There are currently at least six different dialects of Tzeltal spoken in Chiapas: Northern (Ocosingo, Bachajon) , West Central (Tenejapa, Cancuc), East Central (Oxchuc, Chanal, Amatenango), Southern (Aguacatenango, Villa las Rosas, Teopisca), South Western (Copanaguastla [extinct], Comitan), and the nearly extinct South Eastern (Trinitaria, Lagos de Montebello). However, this classification scheme is partial at best - each town where Tzeltal is spoken in the highlands of Chiapas has significant dialectical variation, with some towns even having two or more "sub-dialects" spoken within town boundaries. Vincente Pineda's work includes both the grammar and dictionary of the Tzeltal.



George McClelland Foster, Jr born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on October 9, 1913, died on May 18, 2006, at his home in the hills above the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, where he served as a professor from 1953 to his retirement in 1979, when he became professor emeritus. His contributions to anthropological theory and practice still challenge us; in more than 300 publications, his writings encompass a wide diversity of topics, including acculturation, long-term fieldwork, peasant economies, pottery making, public health, social structure, symbolic systems, technological change, theories of illness and wellness, humoral medicine in Latin America, and worldview. The quantity, quality, and long-term value of his scholarly work led to his election to the National Academy of Sciences in 1976. Virtually all of his major publications have been reprinted and/or translated. Provenance from the executor of Foster's library laid in.

Condition:

Foster's stamp on title and acquiry date (4/7/47) on front paste down, gilt on spine totally faded, title soiled, page edges rough, some pages have minor repairs, first gathering loose. A good copy of a very scarce linguistic dictionary.
